Asus is showing off two new portable displays at Computex this week, including the 15.6 inch, 1080p ZenScreen Touch and the 17.3 inch, 1080p ROG Strix XG17.
It’s that second one that’s more interesting, because it’s the first 240 Hz portable display I’m aware of.
Asus says the ROG Strix XG17 features the same matte display panel it uses for some of its latest gaming laptops and it features a 3ms response time.
That could make this portable display an interesting option for connecting to a gaming laptop that has a less impressive display if you want a high-quality display for use on the go… or for connecting to a mobile computer with a similar display if you just want the benefit of using two 240 Hz displays side-by-side.
The display has micro HDMI and USB-C ports for input, so you can connect a laptop, tablet, smartphone, or other device — which also opens the possibility of using this portable display for mobile gaming on a larger screen. You could use it with a Nintendo Switch for example… although you wouldn’t get to take full advantage of the 240 Hz refresh rate if you did that.
The ROG Strix XG17 has a built-in battery, Quick Charge 3.0 support, stereo speakers, and a kickstand.
